Our Networks

When a project calls for it we can draw on our network of specialists to provide their expertise.

We have good contacts in the field of photography, animation, programming and other media skills.


What we can
Do for you?

Web Design

Custom tailored to suit your style and your visitors' needs

We aim to build sites that offer a satisfying experience on a number of fronts: an overall look and feel that is sympathetic to your style; a content management system that is easy to use; and a site that your visitors find easy and clear to navigate through.


Characters and Digital design

We can create fun icons, interfaces and characters to enhance your brand. Add a touch of bespoke design to your world.


Brand and Logo Identity

Create something fresh and new for your company. Brochures, posters, logos and postcard promotions.


Alongside web design we offer a maintenance service to help keep your site and social media presence fresh and engaging

Copywriting, posting daily news, building up followers, increasing traffic - we can help with all the aspects of maintaining your website once it is built.

    “Michelle was a key part of our redesign project at the BBC. She showed a quick understanding and a clear, concise approach to the project, maintaining enthusiasm and innovation throughout a very strict schedule of deadlines. I can certainly recommend her as a dedicated designer on website projects.”

  •  Dr Lizzie Jackson

    “Michelle produces fine work, and is great at answering a brief. It’s also easy to work ‘remotely’ or virtually with Michelle; she tracks the work and provides you with statements of costs at each stage, which helps your project management.”
